Beth, voiced by Sarah Chalke, begins an affair with her clone and the rest of the family try and process it.
I think that for a while now Rick and Morty has become more and more mean spirited and depressing, I know there has always been an element of it in the show, but now it is getting hard to watch. The way non-space Beth treats her husband her is really quite unpleasant and makes the whole thing hard to watch.
I enjoyed the Summer, voiced by Spencer Grammar, and Morty, voiced by Justin Roiland, b plot slightly more. I thought the idea of hyper realistic videogames was cool and I enjoyed how the episode showed them reacting to their mum’s affair. I thought they became great stand-ins for the audience here.
Overall, mostly just a depressing episode.
The videogame stuff was interesting
Summer and Morty had some good moments
There were a few funny jokes
It feels mean spirited
It is quite uncomfortable viewing
It isn’t enjoyable
